saw the sold next to your signature pic of the 1500 and had to look. congrats on the new truck.. id love to have a cummins too but the idea of paying more for the truck and paying more for fuel every fill up has me hesitant. so ill prolly do the same and drive the 1500 I just got for a couple years, dump a bunch of money into it, and lose my ass when I finally pull the trigger and upgrade again lol

you are like the 3rd guy to finally lift then sell the truck not too Long after. definitely a better upgrade for sure tho
I am sure my jealousy level is about the same as yours right now.

I am having serious thoughts about discontinuing mods and start saving that money towards a cummins.. AHhh.

That truck looks amazing.. Congrats.. I want to steal it, but would take way to long to get out to b.c.. Can't wait to see your future plans for this truck.

No jealousy here Brandon.

The 3500 Cummins is not for everybody. As much as I like their eye-candy factor, I'm one of those people they're not for.

I'm just happy for you, buddy.

Fine purchase with a whole list of sweet mods planned.

Good move with the Bully's thing.

Congratulations and safe driving.

Haha, ya that's kinda how it goes. I decided to make the jump before pouring even more money into the 1500. I never planned for it to be a long term truck for me anyway where as this one will be.
Right now diesel is about the same price as gas in my area so I'm not really forking out much more money for fuel. A couple bucks a fill up. And once the Cummins breaks in a bit more it should be getting better mileage than my 4.7 was getting. Especially once I do the deletes and a tuner down the road

Thanks bud! Definitely a long drive to attempt to steal my truck that you can't get in to
I'd say if you can make it happen, start saving up for the Cummins man. Definitely worth it. It's a whole different league of truck. So nice to have.

No worries Grub, totally understand what you're saying. Thanks for the compliments though! Definitely looking forward to this build over the next few years.

you are definitely right. But at least Brandon pulls the racecar him and his dad have. so it's not like he's rolllin around in a 3500 for no reason haha. If I got a HD truck, I'd definitely have me a boat to pull behind it. I'd make sure I needed that big of a truck. Then of course I'd have a gas getter car. One day, one day.

for now any boat I want/get will be just fine behind my 1500. looking at 17' center consoles now.

Yes, I definitely plan to use the 3500 to it's potential in the future. Obviously my dad's flat deck trailer with his car on it isn't enough weight to warrant a 3500.... but I do have Uncles with big 32ft enclosed trailers that I might end up pulling from time to time. And down the road (once the truck is payed off) I'll probably look into buying a travel trailer of my own. So it definitely will be used.

Lol I know people that can make a truck vanish but they usually cap off at 500km distance....
Yea I love driving 3/4 and 1 tons... We have an 08 F350 powerstroke and a 98 3/4 cummins.. Heavennn.

If your gonna be getting an HD truck.. It has to turn from 17' to like 47'.. With rods and downriggers mounted all the way around... Was down fishing at the lake the other day and this boat for sale just happened to drive by us... Take out a small bank loan and make it work.

Haha, well then I'm glad I'm a few thousand km's away

For sure... this thing is still blowing my mind every day. I keep finding more and more things that it does. This morning I used the idle up feature... a small thing but so nice to have! I was pretty stoked.


Mod Update:
Bakflip G2 has been ordered. I would expect it to be here in less than a week.
